"Our opponent is totally out of touch with the values and the vision of the people in Minnesota's Sixth District," Kroll said. Bachmann, he said, "is in sync with her constituents and has worked in a bipartisan fashion to deliver on the issues most important to them. People know Michele Bachmann, and they know they can trust her."

Finally one element of consistency from the Bachmann camp: Her mouthpieces appear to be as accomplished at uttering preposterous exaggerations, gross distortions and outright falsehoods as she is. (Particularly the part about knowing "they can trust her."

Two questions for Mr. Graves: Will he show up for work consistently? Will he base his legislative positions in reality, rather than rhetoric. If the answer is yes, then Ms. Bachmann's campaign is doomed.

Businessman Graves is like all of those no-it-all, smarty-pants types from high school, who looked down their noses at Real Americans like us and Michele Bachmann. There were many great presidents who were not really, really smart, like maybe Polk, Franklin, or Lincoln for example. Maybe Rep. Bachmann can be president in 2016. She can't though, if Businessman Graves gets in her way. Let's all vote for Michele Bachmann!

The 6th district does not need a carpet bagging Linden Hills leftist representing them. Given Carver county is now part of CD6 - he doesnt stand a chance. I would have volunteered for his campaign if he would have received the endorsement for the DFL in CD5.

How did this guy slip through the DFL screeners?*****************If Your a regressive 1% you want money given to you from cutting programs for the poor ,if your a democratic 1% you know that taxes have to be raised and you are willing to do that against your better financial interests . Where does the honor lie here, I think it is quiet clear.

Re: "[Rep. Bachmann] has worked in a bipartisan fashion to deliver on the issues most important to [the people in Minnesota's Sixth District]." Whoa, Chase Kroll... Bipartisan??? It's bipartisan to proudly proclaim opposition to every policy brought forward by the President? It's bipartisan to reflexively oppose any policy proposed by any Democrat? Social issues are more important to the CD with the highest unemployment rate and the highest rate of foreclosures than economic justice? The most important issues of all to the people of the 6th Congressional District are a bridge which largely benefits the people of Wisconsin and the “Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act"?
